My Take on NYC Big Bold Mascara in Extra Black:
I always like my eyes to be my most expressive feature and for the same reason, I keep trying new eye products with the hope that it will be my HG product. For some time, I was happy with Avon Super Shock Mascara, then tried L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes which I liked, and now finally settled on NYC Big Bold Msacara. If I have to summarize its review in three words, I would just say – “go get it.” Yes, I am in love with the mascara.
It adds so much volume to my thin sparse lashes. The lashes look longer and fuller and maybe its with the wand that I get a curling effect as well. Packaging wise, it’s a chubby reddish-pink coloured tube. I really like the over-sized big mascara as it adds a bit of colour to my make up stash. The barrel is big and so is the wand. The bristles are nicely packed. On a closer look, we get to see the little curve in the beginning of the wand which makes it good for the inner corners of the eyes.
Applying it on the lower lash line was a bit of a problem initially, but with practice, I devised my own trick. The consistency of the mascara is on the thicker side. I had read somewhere that all volumising mascaras are mostly dry and I was not expecting much from this one as it wasn’t dry at all. But to my surprise, I got thick and long lashes with just two coats. There was no clumping whatsoever in two coats, but with more coats, it started to clump.
It has a very mild fragrance and once you apply it, the smell does not bother. It stayed intact for a good 8-9 hours on my super oily lids and I could see slight smudging by the end of the day which may solely be attributed to my oily skin. The mascara comes off easily with a makeup remover, not much of tugging and pulling involved. I haven’t noticed any irritation in my eye with this.
Overall, I am quite impressed with the product and would recommend it to all.
